Palm Springs - Live


Palm Springs

This is one of the many songs that didn't make "Jill Comes Alive"

I was in one of my writer's block periods. I thought I would go to the desert for some inspiration. This is all I got.

Listen here: Here.

Went to the desert, on a mission"

To have a vision, or write a song

I left real early, I left my cell phone

I , took the Prius

It gets good mileage

Something’s gonna happen to change my world

I’m on the highway, I pass the windmills

I pass the outlet stores

Soon I’ll find the sacred places I’ve been searching for

Wild horses, Hawks circling, Gram Parsons, Inspiration

Big Cactus, Coyotes

Something’s gonna happen to change my world

When I got there, to the motel, It was different than the website

It was crowded, mostly seniors, there was a bar band playing Bad Bad Leroy Brown

So I went hiking, it was so barren

And it got too hot, so I turned around

Went to the main drag, I saw the statue

Of Sonny Bono, he was smiling

Something’s gonna happen to change my world

Wild horses, Hawks circling, Gram Parsons, Inspiration

Big Cactus, Coyotes

Something’s gonna happen to change my world

Back on the highway, wave to the windmills

The setting sun in my eyes

Drive to the ocean, that’s where we come from

I’ll throw my troubles to the rising tide.

Something’s gonna happen to change my world

Sea horses, sharks circling, Brian Wilson, inspiration

Smart dolphins, waves crashing

Something’s gonna happen to change my world
